So in a previous post I was lamenting the use of O rings. Sitting around the other day I had an idea that could be a better alternative. In the course of my piddling around I sometime use rubber cement for various projects. Although O rings work to keep the shafts and flights secure they often and I think most of the time interfere with the alignment of the points barrel and shaft causing erratic flight. We also discussed using loctite but zeeple brought up changing shafts out frequently. To make a long story short Monday I applied a little rubber cement to the shaft threads and today Friday was the first time they started to loosen up. Now one thing that I did find out was that you need to apply and then let them set up for a while so my solution would be to treat several sets of shafts before starting any serious play.
